Confederation of Danish Industry focuses on lack of skilled labor

By Emma Severin

Getting qualified labor has for a long time been an issue for the Confederation of Danish Industry, DI. Therefore, DI has made the issue of skilled labor as one of their focus points this year.

“In Denmark it is difficult to find qualified labor, and that is a challenge,” says Marie Gad, senior consultant in DI.

Gad points to the fact that the demographic challenges in Denmark but also in Europe is one of the reasons why it is harder finding skilled labor these years.

Last year, the business committee of DI was asked about the biggest challenges in their companies, and more than half answered that the lack of qualified labor is a threat to their businesses.
